Product Description

Product Description

The 45rpm single tells the real story of African music: in Kenya in 1980, the average music fan could usually afford 10 shillings for a single, but it would have been much harder to find the 55 shillings needed for an album. (compiler Doug Paterson)

In homage to those singles, this is a crucial selection from the late 1970s by one of the most successful East African bands of the time, all were originally released only as singles and none have been available on CD before now.

Honed to perfection on the road, in the studio the songs were recorded as single-take sessions and then faded down and up at the mid-point to be released as sides A and B. With access to the analogue tapes, our tracks have been painstakingly mastered and rejoined as originally recorded.

Orchestra Super Mazembe were musical migrants from the Congo (then Zaïre). A sprawling, dynamic unit with multiple personnel changes, they nevertheless toured up and down Kenya and recorded hit after hit so that today they are acknowledged as one of the key groups of the time.
